Näkymä is the enormous panoramic pool that offers a breathtaking view of Ottawa-Gatineau. Head over to the Panorama Lounge to order yourself a glass of wine, then slide into the Näkymä pool to share moments in pleasant company, in any season. Its temperature is 37 °C.
This winter, a new all-season pergola will be installed in the Panorama section, next to the Biërgarden. This new heated and covered glass structure is a great spot to enjoy a bit of social relaxation in a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.
Make a stop at the Biërgarden to order a microbrewed beer, a glass of wine, or a snack to go. Head to the pergola, make yourselves comfortable under a blanket by the fire, relax, savour, enjoy the décor. The Panorama pergola is literally a bubble of ultimate relaxation.
Find Tellura in front of the barrel sauna, near the entrance of the Panorama area. Tellura is a relaxation space with heated stone beds made from quartz. These heated slabs (100°F) are part of an Asian heat therapy tradition, called “Ganban’yoku” in Japan, or “stone bed bath.” Like sunbathing, there is no water in this “bath.” Instead, you bathe in the radiant heat of the warm stones.
The Tellura space was designed to evoke the unembellished tranquility of the original Asian heated stone beds. Six radiant stone beds await you for a unique experience that puts you in contact with the earth in its most ancient form. Included in the thermal experience. We hope you enjoy it.
Two enormous new hot baths are now open in the Panorama area to expand your comfort and relaxation options. Each of these baths can hold up to 50 people! Carved into the rock and in symbiosis with nature, these baths offer a Hot Springs-inspired experience while evoking the Canadian Rockies. The water’s temperature is 37 °Celsius.
A first bath, a therapeutic Jacuzzi, pours into a second hot bath, which finishes its path in the Näkymä infinite pool. A technology imported from Germany was used for the therapeutic air bubble bath. In this bath, your body floats gently. Air bubbles have a soothing and comforting effect on the skin, tissue and nerves, activating your circulation and targeting your muscles and joints. The magic of air bubbles evaporates the stress and strain your tired body suffers, and strength, endurance and placidity return.
Right next to the Panorama Lounge is Kuuro, the temperate rain shower. When you need to refresh yourself while strolling around the site, hop under the lukewarm rain shower. The feeling is quite simply magical.
An authentic yurt appears on the Nordik site next to the Näkymä infinite pool. Located in the Panorama area, this social relaxation section can host up to 20 people at once. Inspired by the traditional dwellings of nomads on the Central Asian steppes, the yurt combines charm and rusticity.

Your eyes shut of their own free will. Your mind wanders, all is well, and you enjoy the moment. Give thanks to life.
